A message from the President and CEO of Vanderbilt University Medical Center about Celebrate event


On April 20 and 21 we are holding a new event, Celebrate -- The difference YOU make every day. This event has been created to acknowledge the outstanding work performed each day by every member of our team. It’s our opportunity to thank you for all that you do.

Celebrate -- The difference YOU make every day will be a worthwhile investment of your time. In addition to hearing from some of our patients whose lives you have impacted,  you’ll also hear inspiring stories from colleagues. And what celebration would be complete without music? You will be entertained by a diverse set of musical performances by NBC's The Sing Off champions The Vanderbilt Melodores, former NSYNC member and country music artist Chris Kirkpatrick, and Nashville’s top house band The Music City Sound. 

We are Celebrating YOU at three separate times that are convenient whether you work days or nights.  I hope you will please plan to join us by registering today for the session that best fits your schedule. 

In addition to having fun, there will be drawings for concert tickets for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Hall and Oates, along with other give-aways for those who attend. 

I look forward to seeing you there.



Jeff Balser, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO, VUMC; Dean, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
